Paper Abstract

Myosin filaments are important components of striated muscle and pack in a two-dimensional array. The array can be imaged by electron microscopy of thin cross-sections which shows, for many species, that the filaments adopt two orientations with an interesting statistical distribution. Analysis of the micrographs and Monte Carlo modelling shows that the disorder maps to a frustrated Ising model.
